FAIL: Trudeau Government Gets “F” Grade For Access To Information

The Trudeau government talks a big game about openness and transparency. It turns out, they’ve literally failed.

An independent audit of Canada’s Access to Information system under the Liberals has concluded that the system is worse than it was under the Harper government.

And while the Trudeau government tried blaming Harper (as usual) for the problem, the audit was specifically focused on how the system has “worked” while the Liberals have been in power. Says the report, “The Liberal government has a long way to go if it is to deliver on its promises of transparent government.” 

The audit gave the Liberals an “F” grade for disclosing information, and also criticized the government for not upholding their campaign promises in a new bill to reform the program. During the 2015 campaign, Trudeau promised to open the Prime Minister’s Office and Cabinet Minister’s offices to the Access to Info Act, yet his new bill leaves out that promise. It’s yet another bait-and-switch.

Additionally, the Liberal government has been worse than the provinces at responding to access requests. In an interview, Fred Vallance-Jones – the report’s lead author – said, “I think ultimately Canadians deserve better than what they’re getting from their federal government when it comes to Access to Information.”

Once again, the Trudeau government lies and fails.

Trudeau’s government just keeps piling on the taxpayer,now they lie about their vaunted “transparency”. As I’ve said repeatedly ,Scheer and his crew are being handed the keys to victory,as Liberal arrogance has set in after only 22 months in Office.It took Chretien’s crew over ten years to reach this point,and they lost in ’06. It’s your to win ,CPC, over to you. Btw, how come nobody but me seems to be upset that bailout baby Bombardier has a plant in Ireland that provides 4200 jobs, jobs that,given their history of government handouts, should have been located in Canada/Quebec? Have we… Read more »

“…….deserve better than they are getting from their federal government……” — it could have ended there and been every it as accurate. This government must go down in history as the worst government to ever exist in our country. He has even managed to best his father’s sad legacy of government and he has done that in only two years — that is a record that will likely withstand the test of time. Embarrassing, to say the least. Discouraging, to say the best. Criminal in reality, to call it as t is.

It boggles the mind that more people don’t see what this fake, treasonous pm has been doing to our beautiful country. Is everyone asleep or just looking the other way? Are they past caring?
We must find a way to expose all his lies and deceptions.
